Association of Private Hospitals of Malaysia president Datuk Dr Kuljit Singh pointed out that the supply of surgical gloves may only see a problem if Top Glove factories were to remain closed for a longer period of time.
“Compared with face masks and other personal protective equipment (PPE), glove supply was never an issue, even at the beginning of the pandemic in the country.
“Most hospitals usually make frequent purchases in volume and have ample supply since its usage is regular.
“If the company’s production is only closed for a short while, we shouldn’t have a problem.
“If it has to remain closed for many months, things may be different, ” he said, adding that there were many other glove makers who could step up to meet the demand.
